The complete Your Love Is Dangerous series in a single volume. . Mistaken (Book 1) Tall, dark, and hot as sin—what else could I ask for in a bodyguard? Too bad my father hired Seth Rovero without consulting me, and all because of a few bruises on my arms. Running an underground fight club and keeping it secret from my father is already hard enough, and I know I can't trust Seth's piercing blue eyes that want to strip me bare—especially not after he tracks me down at my club and complies with our most important rule: no entry without a fight. Although I suspect Seth is here to spy on me rather than to protect me, I may not have a choice but to trust him when a gang leader makes a move to take over my club. The question is, will Seth help me? Or is he here for reasons of his own? . Fugitive (Book 2) I never thought I'd be on the run from a gang, but here I am. The Wolves and their leader Zack are coming for me, and they won't stop until I'm dead. The only ones who might be able to help me are their biggest rivals, but I don't know if I can trust them, especially after I discover who their members are. At least I have Seth and Chiara by my side. I only wish I knew what Seth is hiding from me. If I survive long enough, maybe I'll finally find out. . Stronger (Book 3) I promised Seth I'd find him and that's exactly what I'm going to do, even if he doesn't want me to. Unfortunately, I can't save him on my own, but I have a plan. I'll make the Rosa Nera believe that I'm on their side and that I've forgiven their leader for what she's done to me so that I can use them for what I need. But tricking them into helping me won't be easy, especially when only one wrong move could cost me my life. . The series may contain potentially triggering situations violence, strong language, and sexual content.

She’s always been the one he couldn’t forget. Will destiny let them find each other again? Or what happens in the past, best left for the history books?

Except Luke and his motorcycle club, Hades' Spawn, are hip deep in problems between the vicious Rojos one percenter motorcycle club and their associated street gang, the Hombres. When Luke’s employee and best friend, Gibs, is slain in a brutal shootout, dark secrets from Luke’s past claim him. He finds he has to make a deal with the devil just to keep Emily and his club safe. However, to keep Emily out of danger he must also to turn his back on her. Emily has lost her car, her job, and had to seek an order of protection against her ex, Evan Waters. In the face of her family’s disapproval she's determined not to lose Luke too. But will Luke’s heartless rejection drive her away? Or will she keep the faith and hope Luke finds his way back to her before her own secret causes her to do the unthinkable? Can Luke and Emily survive the hopeless tangle of club and gang politics, and the fierce reach of the law to find their way back to each other?

Shunning his Ivy League education and the empire that was his birthright, Damian Cavallo found his place in New York City’s criminal underworld after the fall of the Syndicate. Reclusive and angry, he works alone — until crime lord Nico Vitale makes a compelling argument for the new organization’s far-reaching power. After hearing Nico out, Damian is willing to consider the possibility of leading the New York territory. There’s just one problem: he isn’t the only one who wants it. Aria Fiore didn’t choose a life of crime — it chose her. Raised by her dangerously unbalanced brother, Primo, after the death of their parents, Aria had no choice but to follow him into a life of crime. She finds happiness working in the city’s community garden but can’t help wondering if she’ll ever get the chance to choose something for herself. Then Damian Cavallo appears — hot, brooding, and demanding Primo forfeit the New York territory. Aria has no love for the business, but even the gorgeous criminal can’t shake her loyalty to her brother. As the rivalry becomes more and more deadly, Primo’s first in command is only too happy to goad him into reckless action. Desperate to save her brother, Aria forges an alliance with Damian that quickly turns into an undeniable passion. Now she’s forced to admit the truth: She is in love with Damian Cavallo — and her real enemy is much closer to home.

When your childhood is stolen from you, what hope is there for your future? For three young women, life is unimaginably horrible. Two were taken from their families as children, and the third is held in virtual slavery in plain sight. But it is not only their freedom that has been stolen—their hope for a future has also been crushed. Through a strange series of coincidences, the women are reunited in their hometown. They must overcome their many wounds, both physical and emotional, to survive. The physical wounds are easy enough to conceal. The psychological ones run deep and fester in the shadows of shame and hopelessness. As a survival tactic, they’ve buried the painful memories of their childhoods. From time to time, though, fleeting images of who they once were slip through the façade. Now they must find a way to do the impossible, the unthinkable: escape. But hidden beneath their desperation for a life free of their captors is another demon. They must pretend to be normal so they can live in everyday society. But first, they must find a way to escape. If they are to survive, they must depend on the strength of new people who have entered their lives. Can the women ever trust again? And how much are they willing to risk in order to leave the nightmare behind? Are they in danger of exchanging one life of horror for another?

African Video Movies and Global Desires is the first full-length scholarly study of Ghana’s commercial video industry, an industry that has produced thousands of movies over the last twenty years and has grown into an influential source of cultural production. Produced and consumed under circumstances of dire shortage and scarcity, African video movies narrate the desires and anxieties created by Africa’s incorporation into the global cultural economy. Drawing on archival and ethnographic research conducted in Ghana over a ten-year period, as well as close readings of a number of individual movies, this book brings the insights of historical context as well as literary and film analysis to bear on a range of movies and the industry as a whole. Garritano makes a significant contribution to the examination of gender norms and the ideologies these movies produce. African Video Movies and Global Desires is a historically and theoretically informed cultural history of an African visual genre that will only continue to grow in size and influence.

Volume 11 of 12 Video Lectures The preservation of African history The reality for a new Africa The serious business of being serious The slave trade interviewed by Clemson Brown Dr. John Henrik Clarke was renowned for his dedication to the study of African peoples throughout history, both in Africa and the diaspora. Dr. Clarke was also widely regarded as a devoted and brilliant educator. His love for education, African peoples and the history of African peoples, translated directly into his work as a Pan-Africanist writer, historian and lecturer. He played a pivotal role in the creation of Africana studies and several professional institutions in academia. Interestingly enough, Dr. Clarke climbed to great academic heights without ever having earned a high school diploma. Born on January 1, 1915, in Union Springs, Alabama, John Henry Clark was the youngest child of John and Willie Ella Clark, sharecroppers. The Clark family eventually moved to Columbus, Georgia, in pursuit of better fortunes and the dream of owning their own land. Dr. Clarke, the future educator, never formally attended high school, dropping out of school in the 8th grade. Despite his mother’s desire that he pursue the family vocation of farming, in 1933, at the age of 18, he left the South as part of the Great Migration of blacks to the North, and headed to Harlem, New York. Dr. Clarke flourished in the fertile intellectual and cultural climate of the Harlem Renaissance. He joined study circles such as the Harlem History Club and the Harlem Writers' Workshop. In the Harlem History Club, he met John G. Jackson, Willis N. Higgins, and Arthur A. Schomburg, who became mentors in his self-taught study of African history. Through his association with members of the Harlem History Club as well as Richard B. Moore, J.A. Rogers, William Leo Hansberry and Josef ben Jochannan, Dr. Clarke learned much about black history. He immersed himself in the tradition that researched, wrote, and taught black history away from the formal institutions of higher learning. Despite his intensive work in black history, Dr. Clarke actually began his career in creative writing, with his first published work being a collection of poetry. He penned over fifty short stories, including "The Boy Who Painted Christ Black," his most famous. He was co-founder of the Harlem Quarterly and book review editor of the Negro History Bulletin. He sharpened his skills as a writer for the black-owned Pittsburgh Courier, the Ghana Evening News and later as associate editor of the magazine, Freedomways. He eventually changed his name to John Henrik, in honor of the playwright Henrik Ibsen; he also added an “e” to his surname, spelling it “Clarke.” During the Black Power movement in the 1960s, Dr. Clarke championed the redefinition of Africans in world history and the study of the African-American experience. In 1968, along with the Black Caucus of the African Studies Association, Dr. Clarke founded the African Heritage Studies Association, and was its first president. In 1969 he was appointed as the founding chairman of the Black and Puerto Rican Studies Department at Hunter College in New York City. He was also a founding member of the Black Academy of Arts and Letters and the African-American Scholars' Council. Dr. Clarke also played an important role in the early history of Cornell University's Africana Studies & Research Center. He was the Carter G. Woodson Distinguished Visiting Professor of African History at the Center in the 1970s, and made an invaluable contribution to the establishment of its curricula. In 1985, the Faculty of the Africana Studies and Research Center at Cornell University named the John Henrik Clarke Library after him. In keeping with his singular educational path and impressive teaching history, Dr. Clarke was the author of numerous articles that have appeared in leading scholarly journals. He also served as the author, contributor, or editor of 24 books, including collections of his own short stories. At the age of 78, John Henrik Clarke earned a doctorate from the non-accredited Pacific Western University, since renamed California Miramar University, in Los Angeles. It is easy to understand why Dr. Clarke is widely recognized as a pioneer in the field of Africana Studies. He challenged the views of academic historians and helped transform the way African history was studied and taught. He was an academic pioneer and an outspoken champion of the accurate re-telling of the history of African people. John Henrik Clarke died on July 16, 1998. He is buried in Green Acres Cemetery, Columbus, Georgia. “History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be.”

Many believe there is nothing like seeing a good movie, one that is enjoyable both in itself and for the thought processes it stimulates. From The Usual Suspects and When Harry Met Sally to Gandhi and The Color Purple, this handbook functions as a guide to watching and reflecting upon 75 great films. The author, a philosophy instructor, presents a text designed to lead readers through a series of intellectual gymnastics; to help strengthen critical thinking abilities and to inspire exciting and philosophical thoughts and discussions. “Civil Disobedience,” “Death,” “Fate and Determinism,” “War,” “Sexism and Women’s Issues,” “Gay Rights,” “The Greatest Happiness Principle,” “Anxiety and Inauthenticity” and “The Holocaust” are examples of the 18 different categories into which the films are divided. Each chapter includes the author’s introductory comments to be read prior to watching movies along with a section of “Questions to Ponder” to be considered afterward. Photographs of many movie scenes are included throughout the text. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
